I watched a snail crawl along the edge of a straight razor. That's my dream; that's my nightmare. Crawling, slithering, along the edge of a straight razor...and surviving.

oh yeah, CDSs MADE Italy bankrupt, they MADE oil peak, yeah.  Ban them and everything will go back to hunky dory.

CDSs have only exposed what some tried to keep hidden.  Oh, and they were the primary driver of synthetic debt and were consquently essential for credit growth

Nobody EVER accused Zero Hedge of being, or even TRYING to be, "professional."

"Professional" is one of the main reasons the planet is burning.

What's funny is that "dusche" is shower in German. So, if you call it shower-land, you are making a reference to the most painful and shameful part of their history. Even though what we mean by doosh should probably be more offensive, it actually still pales before the message that actually comes across. 


Another little Cliff Claven point of note: all these years, our slur for germans has been, among other things, "kraut", which we assume means a reference to saurkraut. By it self, it just means "herb".

So, if you went around and people were calling you an herb, you'd probably be infinitely more confused than offended. 

I am a big dork (grosse Streber). On with the show.

This is why ZH is so great, there are constant tidbits of useless information that we can then use to confuse the shit out of people who have no idea that the parthanon is burning, much less where it is or what the hell a parthanon is anyway.

dork away!

I draw the line for 'speaking your mind' at stupid. Anything beyond that..........well, no joy joy from CD.

BTW I am considering doing an audio version where I read my essays in my voice and attach a link to that file in the article.

Is there any interest from the ZH crowd for this?
